UTS alumni awarded Screen Australia Onbass Fellowship
UTS Media Arts and Production alumni, Meg White, has been awarded a full-tuition scholarship to attend the American Film Institute Conservatory.
Created in partnership with Screen Australia and the Onbass Family Trust, the Screen Australia Onbass Fellowship aims to support emerging Australian filmmakers. Meg will receive a scholarship for full tuition and fees to the American Film Institute (AFI) Conservatory in Los Angeles, as well as support for living expenses and flights, courtesy of G'Day USA and Qantas. The AFI Conservatory is currently the top-ranked film school in the world.
Meg is a keen cinematographer, with experience shooting features, television and commercials. Since graduating from UTS, she has worked in Australia and internationally across a diverse range of projects. Meg has also been awarded a number of accolades, including the Australian Cinematographers Society (ACS) Silver Award and the 2017 Drew Llewelyn Camerimage Scholarship.
Thank you for this unique and extraordinary opportunity to extend my professional development abroad in the U.S. I will endeavor to make the most of the relationships, exposure, access and work prospects the Screen Australia Onbass Fellowship and AFI will provide. I am proud to be the inaugural recipient of the Fellowship and look forward to representing the Australian film industry at the AFI Conservatory.
